I'm sure I've seen Dad's home movies many time over the years. As kids we begged him to bring out the film projector and the amazing screen which glistened like diamonds, and we'd watch us as little kids and be totally embarrassed (as Dad occasionally swore when the reel went wrong), and the time before when Dad was a bit of a movie buff making cigarettes pop out of their packets and filming friends and family puffing ciggies like models at the local golf course, occasionally in technicolor.
But as time passed, and the movie camera and projector packed it in, the screen made it across as movie shifted to slides, but even they all disappeared after a bit for photographs.
So when Dad presented me with a CD a few years ago with the surviving home movie footage I watched in amazement and most of which I had forgotten altogether. Unfortunately, with no video software, I used screen grabs or camera shots at the screen to get photos, and then used a number of these in scrapbooking.
And I continually ask myself when I look at these photos, was I ever this small?
